New LaCie Big Disk Extreme + 2TB Drive

The external hard disk drive employs two internal mechanics preconfigured as a RAID Level 0. The system can operate in portrait or landscape position and can also be rack mounted if desired. The drive also incorporates the new LaCie shortcut button that automatically runs any application, including EMC’s Retrospect backup software, which is supplied with the drive.

The drive’s mechanics have a rotational speed of 7,200 RPM and incorporate a total of 32MB of combined data cache. The drive can be connected to your Mac or PC using one or two FireWire 800 ports, a FireWire 400 port, or a USB 2.0 port.

The unit requires Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later.
